93-94 points/'Very Fine,' Steen Öhman (Winehog): "The Pommard Rugiens-Bas 2016 is a further sign that the tasting traditions could be changing a bit, as this is a big and very young wine at this time. Make no mistake: This is a tremendous glass of Rugiens, and it confirms my love of and enthusiasm for this mineral terroir. This is a typical 2016, with intense concentration – notes of cherries, raspberries and boysenberries, with hints of liquorice. Intense yet vivacious, with a great breadth of impressions – perfectly supported by the powerful minerality of the mighty Rugiens terroir. On the palate, intense and buffered by rich and ripe mid-palate fruit. This is a big Pommard by any standard, and it should age very well for at least 20 years. Drink From 2032. Tasted 5/20/19. (8/14/19)"

93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .69 ha parcel). A restrained and appealingly layered nose blends notes of smoke, anise, spice, earth and red and dark cherry along with lovely floral hints. There is equally good layering to the more mineral-driven, intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors that are tautly muscular before culminating in a strikingly persistent finale. This is classy but relatively tightly wound so at least moderate patience recommended. Drink: 2027+. (Apr 2019)"
